Rabid Beaver Terrorizes Woodstock Reenactment!

We go now live to Muffy Muffington.  Muffy?

Muffy:  Thank you, Biff.  I am standing here with windswept hair and a very lightly wrinkled silk blouse from Off 5th.  Also, I should point out that my skirt is also silk and is a little too short, but the crawler at the bottom of the screen will show you nothing while increasing our male viewership.

Biff:  That’s all fine and good, Muffy, but I understand there is some sort of kerfuffle at the Woodstock Reenactment.  My suit, by the way, was provided by Botany 500.

Muffy:  [laughing]  The 1960s called, Biff.  They want their suit back!

Biff:  [also laughing]  Ha ha!  Very good, Muffy.  If you see Wink Martindale tell him … something … something funny … using some sort of reference about Tic-Tac-Dough.

Muffy:  [Still laughing]  Will do, Biff.

Biff: Now what about this Angry Beaver?

Muffy:  It was a rabid beaver, Biff, and it was terrorizing the peaceful re-enactants who come here to this remote farm in upstate New York to relive the glory days.  Specifically, the three days of peace and music and over exposure.

Biff:  I believe they like to be referred to as “re-en-actors“, Muffy.

Muffy:  Ha ha ha!  You are just too funny, Biff.

Biff:  No.  Seriously.  They do.

Muffy:  Really?  How odd.  Well anyway, I found someone who was willing to be interviewed on camera and here he is now.  Sir, can you tell us your name?

Interviewee:  Stargazer Moosebray Turkeywaddle

Muffy:  Are … are you serious right now?

Stargazer:  Oh sure.  Totally serious.  My parents met at Woodstock and they were like… totally … you know … what’s the word?

Muffy:  Tripping?

Biff:  Stoned out of their minds?

Stargazer:  Into Find-a-Word puzzles.  Anyway, they were playing one of those between acts on stage and those were like the first six words they found.

Muffy:  Wow

Stargazer:  But you can call me Moose.  All my fellow re-en-actors call me that.

Biff:  Told you!  Re-in-actors!

Muffy:  So tell me more about this beaver.

Moose:  Well, we were re-enacting over there near that glade —

Muffy:  Did you say glade?

Moose:  Oh yeah.  It was a glade all right.

Muffy:  And what exactly were you doing?

Moose:  Well, we were re-enacting a pivital part of  Woodstock.

Biff:  You mean when the Grateful Dead’s set was cut short after the stage amps overloaded during “Turn On Your Love Light”?

Moose:  No, Man.  Seriously.  That meant nothing to anyone.  No, I’m talking about that one hour interlude between The Incredible String Band and Canned Heat.  Man, that was where it was at.

Muffy:  Where what was at?

Moose.  IT.  It, Man.  It!  It was like the eye of the storm.  Know what I mean?  It was like … this … heavy … psychedelic … totally … far out … nothingness.

Muffy:  Nothingness?  Then why was it pivotal?

Moose:  I’m pretty sure that’s where I was conceived.  Spirtually, man.  It was nothingness and then … bam!  It was consciousness, man.  It was … like … my plane of consciousness … melded … with this whole … earthy … Aquarian … Earth Mother …

Biff:  Are you high?

Muffy:  Well what about the beaver?

Moose:  Oh .. yeah … the beaver.  Well, we had just got the generator fired up and had the cappuccino machine plugged in —

Muffy:  Cappuccino machine?

Moose:  Oh yeah.  We’re not savages.

Muffy:  Well duh.  Anyway … go on.

Moose:  Well out comes this … this beaver.

Muffy:  Oh!  Goodness!  What was it doing?

Moose:  Well … it just sort of lumbered over.

Biff:  I thought beavers ATE lumber …

Moose:  And I was like … hey .. there’s a beaver!

Muffy:  Oh my!

Moose:  Oh yeah.  And my girlfriend, Indigo Skye Phoenix —

Muffy?  Wait … what?

Moose:  Indy.  My girl.  Anyway, she says, “That ain’t no beaver!”  And trust me, she would know.

Muffy:  And why is that, Moose?

Moose:  Because her old man a game warden up in Alaska.

Biff:   You sure?

Moose:  No, Yukon.  Anyway, she said “that ain’t no beaver” and I was like, “Whoa!  No way!” and she was like “Way!” and I was like “far out” and she was like “for sure, dude” and I was like —

Biff:  Muffy, you may have to reboot him.

Muffy:  Well was it a beaver or not?

Moose:  Oh, no.  Turns out it was Sage Nirvana Quest’s buck toothed chihuahua that had gotten into the Cool Whip.

Biff:  Sage Nirv–

Muffy:  Aww!  I love chihuahua!

Biff:  That’s it.  We’re done.  I quit.  This is the last episode of Weekend Roundup.  Signing off now.
